L.I.E.S.

Spanish techno stalwarts JC Cabrera and Kastil come together once again for their No Spiritual Surrender project, this time debuting on L.I.E.S.
Go to the a-side for direct, rhythmic, textured and dense techno gear. The b-side offers a different affair ramping up the bpm, exploring broken beats and spacious atmospheres for the more adventouerous dj. Limited to 300 worldwide.

Exploring a beautiful grey area somewhere between P.I.L., Arthur Russell, and downtown New York grit of old, the storied Tom of England (Thomas Bullock) comes forth with his epic debut long player "Sex Monk Blues".

Mr. Bullock has been in the trenches for a long time now as a member of Tonka Hi-fi in England, Wicked Sound System in San Francsico, and lastly the back room viking disco duo Rub n Tug in New York City. Somewhere during this all he made a record for Rough Trade, produced records for Map of Africa (with DJ Harvey) and The Laughing Light of Plenty and wrote a definitive book about Mezcal all whilst touring the world.

As touring grew tiresome priorites refocused and Thomas slowly pieced together the parts of what he wanted to become his debut solo album. In partnership with singer Bobbie Marie and studio engineer Chebon Littlefield we now see this come to fruition with these six tracks, futuristic, classic, danceable, and yes, unclassifiable Sex Monk Blues is what's going on.


PS+ISF (Parrish Smith & Interstellar Funk)

PS+ISF

Dutch powerhouses Parrish Smith and Interstellar Funk team up for their debut collaboration on L.I.E.S. with a new four track EP. Striking up the perfect balance of both their signature styles, this record hits the sweet spot between metallic synthwave, slow beat industrial, and clanging EBM hybrids. The duo effortlessly weave together a sonic narrative with nods to the past but unmistakable emphasis on their ever expanding forward thinking future sound. Recommended!

Doug Lee returns to L.I.E.S. under his AN-I moniker, this time collaborating with prolific Greek producer Unhuman on a new four track EP. This is what happens when you take all the right elements of techno, punk and industrial music and smash them together; a fucked up and devastating hybrid of blistering modern electronics. Heavy, but not stark by any means, Lee channels his inner Liasions with his vocal performace through the record. Most notably this is heard on the cut "Entschuldigung", snotty laughs and scattered barks accent the stuttered drums and MS-20 feedback; Lee bringing it all together in a sarcastic funked up fashion. "Five to Nine" sees both producers complimenting each other expertly, clocking in with the most dancefloor cut on the EP - a twisted five minutes of screaming psychedelic dance that reaches an epic anti-climax of sorts. A true (anti)hit for those who know how to use it right, not to be missed.

Resurrected from the dark underworld after years of dormancy, LIES summon a new seven track LP from Legowelt's most mysterious and cultish alias, Gladio.

Through these seven tracks we get exactly what we want, back to basics jackin house and electro cuts direct from the depths of the Hague dungeon.
"Means to Freedom" is a return to the classic Legowelt sound, taking the roots of old school Chicago and Detroit and running it through the smacked out vision of Gladio's machine world. Absolutely unmissable jacking, soaring, and stomping jams that the modern floor has been sorely missing.

Matt says: Fierce Danny Wolfers alias perfectly suited to the LIES destruction engine. Some of his hardest stuff saved for this guise making this release sTrIcTly 4 da fReaKz...

One half of the KWC 92 (who has previously delivered two top notch lps for L.I.E.S.), Swedish producer Max Stenerudh aka Maxxx Bass steps forward with a 9 track solo effort titled "Gone Fishing". Right off the bat we hear Stenerudh immersing himself in a world of chilled out and narrative FM electronic explorations that call to mind places past. The untitled tracks leave it to the listerner to create a story on their own, as voice pads, hand drums and dare we say pan flutes push and pull their way through the album creating dreamlike textures and otherwordly escapes. Ideal music to fall into a late afternoon summer siesta to. LP comes come with full color 22cmx28cm color poster and download card.

Chicago's Justin Aulis Long and Ken Zawacki return to L.I.E.S. with their second ep under their Circling Vultures moniker. On this offering we get four tracks of tough yet psychedelic machine music. From slow bpm beaters to metal on metal floor cuts, these are executed with precision to do maximum damage whenever played. Sinking their teeth in and never letting go, looming over and waiting for the right moment to strike...tense music for the end times! Another killer from these seasoned club vets.

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: You know what you are getting with this label so no need to hammer it home. Hardcore, eerie, end of the world kind of soundtrack for the times (probably not far away) when the social contract breaks for good and we all have to fend for ourselves. Only the strong survives and all that jazz. As long as you have your music player of choice properly charged and able to pump these tracks at high volume, just sit and contemplate the wonders of human chaos. Wonderful stuff and LIES will be there with you.
